Department of Physiology

Work in my laboratory is focused on the mechanisms important in the regulation of renal function and arterial blood pressure in health and disease. A particular emphasis of our work is centered on the role of inflammation in the development of salt-sensitive hypertension and renal damage. My laboratory has been continuously funded by the NIH since 1997. As an integral part of my laboratory’s research program, I have demonstrated a commitment to training students in renal and cardiovascular science. In the past 20 years, I have mentored approximately 80 fellows, medical students, graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students. In addition, I chaired the steering committee of the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Multicultural Summer Research Training Program; I was a member of the MCW Department of Physiology Graduate Admissions Committee; and I served as a course director and lecturer in both graduate and medical school courses. In the classroom, I was honored as an Outstanding Medical Student Educator eight different times, and I was inducted into the MCW Society of Teaching Scholars. In 2019 I moved to the Medical College of Georgia as the Chair and Professor of Physiology. At MCG I have served as the Founding Director of the Master of Science in Medical Physiology Program and am working to improve the training for our department’s PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellows.
